Gorgeous secluded castle. Very classy. The food was amazing. The staff was amazing. The bathrooms are classic Victorian old bathrooms but fit the style of the hotel. Was a great way to end my vacation in Ireland. Was such a beautiful place and can not wait to go back. I highly recommend this property as a place to stay while visiting Southern Ireland

Great castle and place to stay

Such a beautiful place to stay the night. It’s an actual castle with beautiful grounds, a golf course and a very scenic walk. All the modern conveniences including good WiFi and a big bathroom. You take a ferry across onto the island and to the castle. Dinner was very good. We didn’t have breakfast because we couldn’t get anyone to wait on us so we left to have breakfast in town. That was the only issue with our stay.

    I can't really rate the castle because some rich shit rented out the whole place causing us to be relocated to a townhouse by the country club. Now to be honest they had warned me that this would be the case after I made our reservation, however it was too late for me to change our plans...and the townhouse was nice. What was really disappointing though was that the shit also had exclusive use of the castle's restaurant and since the clubhouse only does breakfast on weekends, we were left without a means of breakfast during our stay... A situation we had not been warned about, otherwise we could have purchased food in advance.
